    Everyone wants to remove Assad…Except Russia…Vicki’s idea about a naval base there …could change that…not sure however if Turkey would feel that good about have Putin in their back yard…

    PBO will sign an executive order making shopping and eating on Thanksgiving Day illegal. The Day will be only for giving thanks and fasting.

      Tut-tut, Hf! Now why are you trying to get the wackos to intensify their “appreciation” of PBO? They would have to learn how to give thanks…..for starters!

    We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day; got the turkey in; husband made Vegan Lasagna for daughter #1, put up Christmas lights for outside and had a fantastic meal only to end with a huge fight between hubby and daughter #2. I feel so sad right now.

      Betsy, it is sad there was a ‘fight’, but I’d say leave it between the two participants and don’t let it taint the final hours of *your* TG day! Instead try to focus your mind on all the many little pieces of joy and thanks that were woven into the day. Try anyways – I bet there were lots!

    Well people, if you knock and you get silence it may just be that I’m having a nap. G’night/morning one and all! Heading to bed with a thankful heart, I am.

    Just got home from a wonderful dinner. My friend’s husband cooks every year from shopping to dishes – completely from scratch! And, he’s a great cook. Turkey, string beans with almonds, brussels sprouts roasted in duck fat, mashed potatoes, gravy, turkey, stuffing, rolls, cranberry sauce (made with raspberries, pineapple and whole cranberries – not my fave with the can lines, but tasty πŸ™‚ ) Then pumpkin pie with hand whipped cream and homemade ice cream for dessert. He’s a gaffer, so he works long hours and she does all the cooking the rest of the year, but he does the best Thanksgiving dinner ever!

    My cousin sent me this; thought you might enjoy πŸ™‚

    Pope Francis is not holding back! Here’s a link to the live reports from Nairobi. Full stadium on their feet holding hands– great stuff.
